    I am interested in freezing different types of foods re: liqiuds and
    solids.Can I freeze cream and milk? and do I need some space at the
    top of the bottles for expansion? Can I freeze hard and soft cheeses?
    Thanks Susan.

    Frozen whole milk tends to separate after being frozen, ie the fats
    separate from the water part. My mother used to do it all the time once
    she got to old to drive and had to have someone take her to grocery. She
    did leave space for expansion IIRC. Don't know about cream though.

    I have frozen hard cheeses at one point in the past. Didn't care for the
    texture after it was thawed. If I buy a large block of hard cheese
    nowadays I cut off a part for immediate use the vacuum seal the
    remainder and keep it in the fridge. No air gets to it so it doesn't
    spoil and still is good when I cut it again and repeat the process.
    never tried to freeze soft cheeses though.

    Supermarket is just a little way from home today and I just buy what I
    need for immediate use.

    So far, I haven't had the problem of milk separating after being
    frozen, at least some of the milk I got. I had a problem with one
    store brand and won't get milk from them again to freeze, but another
    store's brand does just fine. So I have been freezing their milk
    lately, when I find a good sale: like $1.99/gallon.

    Seems to defrost just fine, compared to the ugly texture of the other
    brand when it defrosted. Don't know why this should be so....

    Susan,
    It sounds to me like you need a good cookbook, most of the info you
    have asked for in your last two posts would be available in one- do
    you have Joy of Cooking? Betty Crocker? I
